The Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association board of directors and staff have introduced CENTS University, a new approach to educating the green industry at the CENTS Marketplace convention.
After its 2014 show, the ONLA board of directors and staff immediately began plans to enhance the quality of its education program, while making the process more efﬁcient and cost-effective for participants.
“CENTS University represents the vision of ONLA to provide world-class education about the business and green issues of greatest importance, and to deliver it with unparalleled excellence, efﬁciency and cost-effectiveness,” says ONLA president David Richards. “CENTS University will reach out not only with continuing education, new research and business-critical information, but with the passion and devotion that make what this industry does so much more than a livelihood.”
Attendees will have access to education from colleges and universities and green industry professionals, as well as non-traditional experts, speakers, authors, business professionals and peers who offer a unique viewpoint. Education will continue to be available to exhibitors, just as in previous years.
“With CENTS University, we are offering a world-class green and business education program worthy of the CENTS name. We continue to be motivated to make CENTS Marketplace of even higher value to exhibitors and attendees, making CENTS the one convention they can’t afford to miss,” says Kevin Thompson, ONLA executive director.
The CENTS Marketplace Convention will take place at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, January 7 to 9, 2015.
